    Immediately after my car starts I hear a loud sound from under the hood that reminds me of ripping thick card board.
    Also, when I am parking I occasionally hear a ping from the wheel well area. Not unlike a large spoke being pulled.

      This car might still have under the 3 years or 36,000 miles warranty. Call the Honda Dealer to schedule a warranty repair.

      Just because the check engine light is not illuminated does not mean that no codes are stored. It would be unproductive to begin guessing here without clear confirmation of what (if any) fault codes are stored. Update the post and confirm that you plugged in a code reader and read codes and provide any code numbers here first.

      Replace the camshaft position sensor also.

      Camshaft sensor has been replaced, already. I got a full diagnostic test to check all my sensors to pinpoint the exact sensor with the issue and they confirmed Crankshaft Position sensor. The check engine light is not currently on. I'm looking to replace this myself, as I do for most my repairs. Will I need to remove the Timing Belt to install the new sensor?

    How much is my car worth?
    I'm trying to sell my car but the engine doesn't work. The car has over 200,000 miles on it. I'm trying to sell the body of the car which is in good condition.

      $500 is max because it needs an engine at least, not even mentioning if anything else needs attention. Someone would have to spend at least $1000 for an engine and then at least $700 to install it and not counting any other unknowns that might up the repair costs they will be in the car for $2200 minimum. If that seems like something you would be willing to go through yourself then that would mean that others would also. In GOOD condition Kelly Blue book says a private party value is $2474.00 so for a person to go through all the repairing of the car to basically end up with a car that they paid full book value (or almost) they will have to like this car a lot for some other reasons, maybe pristine body or interior condition etc. The only person who can get the car done for under book value is someone who will replace the engine themselves.

    When using the dimmer swith on my headlights, sometimes they will go out completely. What ccould cause this>
    172,000 approx. When switching the headlights from bright to dim and back, the lights will occasionally go out completely. I have to keep clicking the dimmer switch or pull off the roadway. It's gotten so that I try not to drive it at night.

      Most likely cause is a bad Turn Signal Switch which includes the headlight switch and dimmer switch, the wiper switch and the turn signals. This is a $200 assembly, referred to as a "combination switch".

    How do you solve carbon build-up from occurring repetitively causing engine light to come on and car run rough?
    There is 80K miles on the engine, all services have been performed by the dealer as required. This first happened at 12K and the dealer said it might be a bad spark plug. Later happened again and 2 cylinders were involved. Replaced all of the plugs well before ...

      I need all specifics including code number information, even if you have to rewrite notations made on your invoice. There is a TSB about multiple misfires on 2008 to 2010 Accord with 3.5 engine. The TSB # is 10-033 but my gut feeling as a mechanic for 37 years says your cause is something else being overlooked. If you want me to help you identify your cause here and lets just skip the dealer service dept I need you to buy a code reader from amazon for $17. Reading codes takes a minute. I need to know code numbers that show up after you feel it running poorly.

      If the battery is the original that came with the car then it needs to be replaced no matter what. Batteries have a 3 to 5 year life.

      If you have a local shop replace the battery the cost of the battery will likely be about $100 to $130 plus a installation fee of about $30. You could however, go buy your own battery at sears for around $95 and install it yourself.

    My car is still running hot after new radiator thermostat and head job
    we can take the thermostat out and it runs fine put it back in and it runs hot again. we have tried 3 different thermostats.

      Before I try to answer this I need you to tell me that you have opened the bleed bolt located on the thermostat housing and purged the air pockets from the engine cooling system with the engine idling. You also need to confirm that the water pump is pumping by removing a heater hose and running the engine with the heater hose end disconnected and look for flow to confirm that the water pump impeller is not compromised in any way reducing flow. Should have stopped after one thermostat replacement.

      This lamp is simply a reminder that the oil and filter need to be changed. Your owners manual says how to reset it.
